Today's big release: Himmatwala

Himmatwala features Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah Bhatia in lead roles.

Highlights

  • Sajid Khan's remake of the 1983 hit film Himmatwala releases today. The film features Ajay Devgn and southern actress Tamannaah Bhatia, who makes her Bollywood debut. According to reports, Sajid Khan has altered the original script to suit the sensibilities of the audiences of today.
  • "The film might come with the tag of a remake, but when you see the film, you will notice that Sajid has completely rewritten the script. Except for a few things that have been taken from the original, the way characters are dealt with is completely different," Tamannaah Bhatia said in an IANS interview.
  • Director Sajid Khan, who has earlier given hits like Heyy Babyy and Housefull, is confident that the movie will be a success. "I knew my film will be a hit when I started writing it. This is my review. I don't even want a half-star review for Himmatwala. I will not even read one review. I don't hate critics, but I feel that 90 percent of them don't love cinema. They are just doing a job," said the director in an interview to IANS.
  • Actress Sonakshi Sinha will be seen doing the moonwalk in a peppy dance number titled Thank God It's Friday, in the film. She wears a retro look in the song inspired from Parveen Babi's look in Shaan and Sridevi from Chaalbaaz.
  • Other major highlights of the film is Ajay Devgn's grand entry, the recreated song Naino Mein Sapna which was a superhit in the original Himmatwala, and the song Dhoka Dhoka which reportedly has five item girls performing.
